This weekend Thousands will gather at the gates, with speakers, music, street theater, workshops and networking with people from across the Americas. We come together at the gates of Fort Benning for the School of the Americas Watch(SOAW) - where the killers are trained - to demand an end to US militarization and to impunity. The Vigil weekend is an opportunity to connect your communities with those across the hemisphere who are resisting Empire. In addition to the main funeral procession on Sunday, November 24, there will be rallies, concerts, and over 70 workshops.

Every year American Friends Service Committee works with the Georgia Peace and Justice Coalition to organize housing and transportation to SOAW. We also staff a table and organize a Georgia Activist meet-up. This year 13 of us left Friday afternoon, and met even more folks once we arrived in Columbus. We'll be here all weekend, it's certainly not too late to join us!
